After Jameis Winston’s transgressions, NFL scouts are turning sour on the sophomore quarterback. One area scout assigned to FSU is not convinced about Winston rehabilitating his image or character.
“It’ll hurt him significantly,” said the area scout, who is assigned to Florida State, per Breer. “Especially with all the stuff going on in the league. This may force him to stay another year to clean up his image. He’s a fraud. You can’t believe anything he says, because he keeps doing the same things over and over. In my mind, there are night-and-day differences between (Johnny) Manziel’s and his character concerns. Winston has some serious issues.”
Many believe that Winston will stay in school one more year because he will receive his degree and he has said that is something he really wants to do. Winston will be eligible for the 2015 draft since he is three years removed from high school (redshirted his freshman year). But that may not be in the cards.
